I am 27 years old and live in Northern Ontario. I work in daycare, but right now I stay at home with my little boy. I can't say I have a favorite cook book, and since I discovered Zaar, I hardley ever use them anymore! I like to cook things that are simple, but different. I love trying new recipies, and new foods. My favorite restaurant is The Hoito - a local finnish place that serves THE BEST pancakes in the world. I also love The Prospector - another local place that has great prime rib. My husband and I enjoy trying new and diferent restaurants. We generally try to avoid the chains - they all seem the same and are boring. We both love to eat freshly prepared food made from scratch.
